Braised Green Beans With Lemon

Braised Green Beans With Lemon created by waterbaby09

I made this recipe for Dîner en Blanc, because it is great served cold or hot. The veggies are layered in a Dutch oven and cooked without stirring until the beans are soft and tender.

ingredients

directions

  • Wash the beans, break off both ends, and break them in half.
  • Mix the herbs and garlic together.
  • In a Dutch oven, layer 1 cup of onions on the bottom of the pan, top with beans, then herb mix, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and drizzle with 1/2 of the olive oil.
  • Finish with the remaining cup of onions before drizzling with the last 1/2 of olive oil.
  • Cover and cook over medium high heat until the pan lid is hot. As soon as the lid is hot, turn the heat down to low and simmer for 1/2 hour, or until the beans are very soft and tender.
  • Stir in 1/8 cup lemon juice.
  • Taste and add more lemon juice, salt, or freshly ground black pepper, as needed.

    I was intrigued by the "no stirring" instructions when I found the recipe so wanted to try it. It worked! :-) I admit to omitting the mint out of personal preference, but we enjoyed the tart lemony flavor of this. Served with Recipe #90662 for Fall 2012 Pick A Chef.
